Course description

This short introductory module will give you an overview of what you may encounter, and what you may be able to offer, if you are working or living with a young person who has come to the UK to seek asylum, when that young person is separated from family, home, community and culture.  Being aware of the multiple aspects of separation, loss, trauma and hope may make us that much better placed to help.

Also here’s a short interactive quiz to help you assess your own level of awareness of the kinds of things separated and unaccompanied children and young people may experience, and how to help through attachment aware, trauma informed practice

You will have continual access to this course for 12 full months.
